FANATTIK readies Alien gift range

New collection will coincide with the 40th anniversary of the film this September.

FANATTIK is gearing up to launch a new Alien gift range, coinciding with the 40th anniversary of the iconic movie this September.

The range will appeal to fans new and old, according to the company, with some collectables limited to 1,000 worldwide and retailing around £60.

Pin badges, a necklace, art prints, bottle openers and playing cards will all be included in the collection.

“This amazing franchise has spawned six films and has a multi-generational fan base,” said Anthony Marks, md of FANATTIK. “The whole team here geeked out when I announced we had signed this amazing licence with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products.”

The science fiction horror film – starring Sigourney Weaver as Ripley – was released in 1979 and was directed by Ridley Scott. It follows the crew of the commercial space tug Nostromo who encounter the eponymous Alien, a deadly and aggressive extra-terrestrial set loose on the ship.
